Please meet our super courageous Johnny boy. This is Johnny’s story: Johnny, together with his 3 siblings, was born in a field to a street dog. When he was only six weeks old, a child smashed his leg with an iron bar.
Johnny Boy was left untreated and in agony but to everyone’s amazement, he survived but sadly contracted Parvo. Sadly the treatment to attempt to save his leg had to be delayed until he was strong enough to stand surgery. At the earliest opportunity, he had a rod inserted with the expectation that the bone would knit and heal.
Sadly, it was not to be the case and his leg had to be amputated. But it takes more than losing a leg to break this brave boy’s spirit and nothing will stop him to enjoy a long and happy life! There is a video of Johnny Boy on our Facebook page (13 Nov 2019) of him as just a tiny puppy at the vets, with the metal pin in his leg!
Johnny Boy is 6 months old and will be on the larger side of medium. He is the cuddliest, most affectionate dog you could hope for. He is good with people, dogs and cats. Johnny Boy has gone through hell and back in his short life and deserves a very loving family.
We are aware that being a tripod may put some prospective adopters off but we hope that animal lovers will look past his disability and see the beautiful boy he is and not his missing leg.
